I hope you can get this...but if not I will list them
1. The Cryptoterrestrials:  Indigenous Humanoids and Aliens Among Us. by Mac Tonnies.
The late Mac Tonnies provides a "mediation" on the idea that at least some of the UFO occupants generally thought of as aliens from other planets might actually be from right here on Earth. Perhaps these beings have evolved alongside us, or long before us, and have moved their civilization out of sight, perhaps underground. Perhaps they even walk among us all the time. It's an interesting hypothesis that has been kicking around for awhile, but Tonnies puts the idea into coherent form to explain the often odd behavior and activity of these beings today and throughout history.
(oddly I think there may be something to this as I do not believe ETs are visiting EArth)

2. Darkness Walks : The Shadow People Among Us by Jason Offutt
Shadow people may be the most commonly reported of ghost phenomena. This may be because people can often mistake normal shadows and other illusions for these ghostly entities, but there may be a genuine phenomenon there. Jason Offutt takes on the subject in this book that explains what they might be --  ghosts, demons, hallucinations, something else? -- from various standpoints: scientific, religious and metaphysical. Of course, many anecdotes of personal encounters are included.

3. The Déjà vu Enigma: A Journey Through the Anomalies of Mind, Memory and Time by
Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman

4. Files from the Edge: Explorations into High Strangeness by Philip J. Imbrogno.

5. Memoirs of a Monster Hunter: A Five-Year Journey in Search of the Unknown by Nick Redfern

6.  Real Monsters, Gruesome Critters, and Beasts from the Darkside by Brad Steiger

7.  Real Zombies, the Living Dead, and Creatures of the Apocalypse by Brad Steiger

8. UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On the Record by Leslie Kean

9. What Lurks Beyond: The Paranormal In Your Backyard  by Jason Offutt

10. Wonders in the Sky: Unexplained Aerial Objects from Antiquity to Modern Times by Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck

11. The Vampire: The Encyclopedia of the Undead by J. Gordon Melton, PhD

It's hard keeping track of all the new books that come out.  Luckily some publishers send through review copies now and then, but I must admit I have not come across any of the above.

the one by Mac Tonnies (does his name mean Son of the Waves?) leans towards a belief I have...that the ancients gods may be living among and that instead of being from other planets...they were simply other beings.

I seriously hate stories about ancient aliens. I always point out that the Sumerians who were so superior...were driving onagers with bloody nose rings and chunk wheels while my primitive ancestors had the wheel figured out and had domesticated the horse...and it was probably these primitive barbarians who introduced the wheel to the world.

I saw something yesterday by some bozos who were trying to say the Egyptian gods were human hibreds....results of genetic crossings. Any humanties student knows the gods were given animal heads so the illiterate people would know which diety was which. Study ancient religion and you begin to notice common themes...like the tree of life...which is in Sumerian mythology but not Egyptian. 
Heck I think the Nasca Indians had hot air balloons....and they left pictures on their broken pottery showing it.

Having a father who bought every single book by Von Daniken, Kolosimo and Sitchin I can well understand what you mean...

Oh I was there too...until I began to realize something wasn't right in Denmark...they completely ignored history and common sense. It's like the Rig-Veda I believe that's the book that tells the story of the flying ships and the war.....it's counterpart is the Irish Book of Conquests....Lugh and Krsna...go figure.

And you would think if a superhuman battle was going on a few miles down the road...the Assyrians might have mentioned it...or the Hittites....why heck even the Egyptians might have glimpsed it since they were buying lapis lazula from someone in Afghanistan.
